After months living in #ManateeCounty I finally get to see some #manatees for the first time!! Top photo is a calf about a year old and bottom left is his mama 😍 #Floridafishandwildlife stopped by to make sure they were healthy. Unfortunately #redtide has taken too many manatees this #summer After a few hours of resting, a visit and some #observation by #motemarinelab , these two took off and were given a clean bill of health! #saveourseas #suncoast #redtidesucks #florida #evendolphinsdying #motemarine #babyanimals #😢

This image was taken earlier this year.... before the red tide rolled in. Our beaches here on the Gulf Coast are anything but beautiful now as the red tide has killed 267 TONS of marine life since July 2018 (source: www.the guardian.com). That is a staggering and heart breaking stat. Everything from small fish to dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, and 72 Goliath groupers have been effected, even a 21 ft. whale shark! It is unfortunate that it has taken an outbreak of his magnitude for it to get real attention from the state and federal government. Red tide rolls around almost annually during the summer months and claims the life of countless fish and various marine life but it seems this years bloom is the worst. Aside from the devastating loss of life, red tide effects those of us who live here, especially those who live on the water causing respiratory issues as well as dealing with the horrible smell that comes with it. Local businesses are effected as well as the areas near the water are just about vacated. There are several theories as to who or what is the cause but regardless of the reason, we need to find a solution! . . . . . . . . . . . #redtideawareness #redtide #heartbroken #heartbreaking #sadness #helpflorida #beach #ilivewhereyouvacation #tourism #motemarine #motemarinelab #floridamarinelifematters #nikonnofilter #itsamazingoutthere #greatshotz #landscapelovers #onlyinflorida #ourplanetdaily #ig_shotz #florida #floridalife #floridagreatshots #landscape_lovers #nikonusa

What are some hints for visiting beaches during Florida red tides? Check the marine forecast, fewer red tide toxins will be in the air with offshore winds and check Mote's Beach Conditions Reporting for conditions at the beach you plan to visit. visitbeaches.org The Beach Conditions Report provides several types of information about Southwest Florida beaches during red tide events: whether dead fish are present, whether there is respiratory irritation among beachgoers, what the water color is, the wind direction and what flags are currently flying at the beaches (for lifeguard-monitored beaches). For conditions throughout the Florida Gulf coast, with information about cell concentrations observed at specific locations visit myfwc.com/redtidestatus and NOAA provides forecasts of potential respiratory irritation: http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/hab/ #motemarinelab

The Seiko PADI diver (SRPA21) is on the wrist on this #BlueWatchMonday. The background logo in this picture belongs to the Mote Marine Laboratory, one the world’s few remaining independent marine research labs not attached to a university or a government agency. As an independent, non-profit organization with five campuses spread around Florida (from Sarasota to Key West to Boca Grande and Summerland Key), the Mote—founded in 1955 by Dr. Eugenie Clark—believes that conservation and sustainable use of the oceans starts with research and education. Originally focused on sharks, the Mote’s research has expanded to include studies of human cancer using marine models, the effects of man-made and natural toxins on humans and on the environment, the health of wild fisheries, the development of sustainable and successful fish restocking techniques and food production technologies, and the development of ocean technology to help us better understand the health of the environment. They also do research on the population dynamics of manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks and coral reefs, as well as on conservation and restoration efforts related to these species and ecosystems. They employ more than 200 folks, including 30 Ph.D. scientists, and are supported by an army-strong group of 1,600 volunteers. I 💙 the Mote, what they stand for, and what they’re trying to accomplish. If you’re ever in this part of the world, please play them a visit. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed! 👉 for a few videos. Current soundtrack: Miles Davis’ rendition of “How Deep Is the Ocean.” 🎧 Good morning, #WatchFam! ☕️

#FunFactFriday! #DidYouKnow that unlike many #redtide species (which are fueled by nutrient pollution associated with urban or agricultural #runoff) there is no demonstrated direct link between #nutrientpollution and Karenia brevis red tide formation or frequency (how often they occur). #FloridaRedTides develop 10-40 miles offshore, away from human-contributed nutrient sources. Red tides have been occurring in Florida long before human settlement, and severe red tides were observed in the mid-1900s before the state’s coastlines were heavily developed. However, once red tides are transported to shore, they are capable of using human-contributed nutrients for their growth. • Learn more at https://mote.org/news/florida-red-tide • #ScienceFactOfTheDay #TheMoreYouKnow #EnvironmentalScience #MarineScience #OceanConservation #Florida #MoteMarineLab #Sarasota_Florida #LongboatKey #LidoKey #VeniceFL

Another disturbing image from Southwest Florida. A Mote Marine scientist walks a dead manatee from a canal so it can be necropsied by Florida Fish and Wildlife. They will test for red tide toxin, which is the likely culprit and is killing tons - literally- tons of fish everyday. I hate posting these photos. But should it be sugarcoated? In journalism school we learned that jarring photos can change the course of war, force new safety regulations, and motivate the unmotivated.

Today Gretchen Lovewell, Rebeccah Hazelkorn and their team in Mote’s Stranding Investigations Program conducted a necropsy on a deceased Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle recovered Monday from Siesta Key. It was found in an area with Florida red tide, and with no other visible evidence for why it died, red tide exposure is suspected. “It’s sad to find one of these endangered turtles deceased, and when we do, we put on our science hats and learn as much as we can, to make sure it didn’t die in vain. We found out that this turtle is female, and by examining its GI tract we found it had been eating fish as well as the crabs we often see in Kemp’s ridleys. Sea turtles are known to be exposed to red tide toxins through their food, and we are wondering if that happened to this animal. We have taken samples - lung, kidney, stomach, for example - to prepare them for analysis at another lab to check for possible red tide exposure.” The team has been quite busy, with 137 sea turtles recovered this year and most of those found deceased. Beyond suspected red tide exposure, human interactions such as boat strikes and fishing gear entanglements played another significant role in these mortalities. If you see a sick, injured or dead sea turtle or marine mammal anywhere in Florida, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at: tel:888-404-FWCC In Sarasota and Manatee counties, call Mote’s Stranding Investigations Program at tel:941-988-0212. #motesip #motemarinelab

#FloridaRedTide is caused by a microscopic alga called #Kareniabrevis, or K. brevis, (pictured here) which produces a toxin that can affect the central nervous system of fish, birds, mammals, and other animals, as well as cause respiratory irritation in humans. • At high concentrations (called blooms), the organism may discolor the water –sometimes red, light or dark green, or brown. • Human health effects include cases of human intoxication from neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP) and impacts on human respiratory function. • Environmental impacts include massive fish kills, marine mammal, sea turtle and sea bird mortalities, and impacts on benthic communities including sea grass and coral community die-offs. • #HarmfulAlgalBlooms (or HABs) such as #redtide occur worldwide. However, K. brevis is found almost exclusively in the #GulfOfMexico but has been found on the east coast of Florida and off the coast of North Carolina. • Red tide was first officially recorded in #Florida in 1844, but reports along the Florida Gulf Coast by Spanish explorers date back as far as the 1500s. • #RedTideBlooms can last days, weeks, or months and can also change daily due to wind conditions. Onshore winds normally bring it near the shore whereas offshore winds drive it out to sea. • No single factor causes a red tide bloom. It needs #biology (the organisms), #chemistry (appropriate conditions and nutrients for growth), #physics (concentrating and transport mechanisms). Tests are being conducted to see if coastal nutrients enhance or prolong blooms, however there are no conclusive results as of yet. • #ScienceFactOfTheDay #MarineScience #EnvironmentalHealth #EnvironmentalScience #OceanConservation #HAB #MoteMarineLab #HABscope

Can anyone guess what's up with the coral in the first image, and it's difference from the second image? Why do the polyps on the left half of this fragment appear different than those on the right, yet in the first image they appear to be apart of the same colony, but in the second image there is a clear dividing line. We believe the first image is an example of a chimera, where an individual's cells may have distinct genotypes. This happens when multiple fertilized eggs merge resulting in characteristics from different genotypes being displayed on the same individual. The second image is 2 separate coral colonies growing into each other and not merging, which is the reason you see the clear divide. There are even a few well documented cases of human chimerism. You can really go deep into the topic of chimerism, and this post doesn't even begin to explain the complexity of it, so I encourage you to do some searches and see what you can find!

Jumped in the water for a pre sunset snorkel and got to spend some quality time with a 8ft Caribbean reef shark 🦈 she was so beautiful, so graceful, so mesmerizing and did not mind at all that I was racing next to her to try to keep up with her. Thank you for coming by and saying hello 💙 Last night was the last night pillar coral spawned in the field (ocean environment) now we cross our finger and hope those microscopic babies hold on long enough for them to become stronger and settle to the bottom of our tanks. Once again this was an incredible coral spawning experience working with @mote_lab @fwcresearch @noaa @sezarc @floridaaquarium and would not be possible without @looekeydivecenter lending us their boats. Thank you to all the volunteers who lent us their time from 5:00pm until the end of the dive around midnight, and an even bigger than you to the volunteers who came back into the lab to work with these babies until 3:00am. I have high hopes for this year and can’t wait to put what we have leaned into next year! #looekey #diving #coralspawning #coral #chasingcoral #marineconservation #oceanconservation #saveourseas #ocean #blue #biology #marinebiology #coralrestoration #fwc #nooa #floridaaquarium #sezarc #motemarinelab #science #unicorns #sharkweek #shark #oneoceandiving #oneoceanglobal🌏

A NEW MEW SPECIES OF SHARK was discovered and named Squalus clarkae, in honor of Mote's founder, Dr. Eugenie Clark, fondly labeled the "Shark Lady". This name is also known as Genie's Dogfish, which was identified from the Gulf of Mexico and western Atlantic Ocean. We are truly touched that Genie is continually recognized for her passion for sharks and dedication to ocean conservation. 🦈 (📸: MarAlliance) #Repost @motemarinelab with @get_repost http://bit.ly/2JClde2 #motemarinelab #eugenieclark #newspecies #sharkspecies #finbannow

#MondayMood...do you ever want to curl up and hide until Friday? This guy sure does! Octopuses are invertebrates, meaning they have no backbone. In fact, they lack the presence of bones all together, which makes hiding from the Monday blues much easier. 🐙 #motemarinelab #octopus
